that is the chairman of the department of medicine at newark beth israel medical center and he joins us now with more. thank you for joining us. >> thank you, heather. great to be here. heather: why are more people skipping these screenings? >> i think it is a question of economy for one thing. i think the tests are costly. there is also secondarily confusion among physicians what to do, what to scan, what tests and how often they should be performed. for example, let's take breast and mammography. a lot of physicians are confused about that. mammography should be done after age 50 and up to age 74 on a yearly basis. it should be done before the age of 50, say at 40, if you in fact have a first degree relative like a mother or grandmother who has had breast cancer or you have particularly dense breasts that is just one example. the insurance companies are not readily willing or perhaps able to pay for people to get breast screenings. another one is colonoscopy. it is recommended that you have a colonoscopy for average person every 10 years, say after the age of 40. five years for flexable for sigmoid

worried for many reasons, but one that really stood out for me was a dad from newark, delaware, whose own child is struggling with mental illness and who is working hard to try and find the resources to ensure appropriate care so that someday he isn't watching with horror on the television as the tragic actions of his child unfold. we think of the story shared online of the mother in idaho terrified that her own son has the capacity to kill some day. and yet, without the ability to give him the intensive medical care, treatment and intervention she believes he needs. across this country, mental health care is a growing challenge for us, between 2009 and 2011, states cut more than $2 billion from community mental health services. two-thirds of states have significantly slashed funding in these difficult economic times leaving parents seeking help for their mentally ill children often with nowhere to turn. mr. president, we must do better for all these parents, the parents who lost their children at sandy hook elementary, the parents who lost their children who were teachers and faculty, th
